tempore: the gentleman yields back. the chair will now recognizes the gentleman from california, for five minutes. mr. garamendi: i thank you, mr. speaker. i join my colleagues here in congress from both sides of the aisle to call for the end to the war in afghanistan. after more than a decade of war, with now more than ,000 lives lost, and hundreds of millions of american tax dollars spent, it's time for our troops to come home to their families. i represent the military communities of travis air force base and come january i will represent the community of beale air force base as well. i can tell you from firsthand experience that the men and women who serve in our nation's military and their families are america's finest. they are not afraid of sacrifice . they joined the armed forces because they love our country and they are willing to give everything to keep our nation safe. but their sacrifice must be for a reason. if we are going to ask them to risk life and limb on the other side of the world, it must be for a mission that is vital to our nation's security. we can no longer say t
-- alex from california, a republican caller. caller: good morning. thank you for c-span. i have complete trust in the fbi, cia, at home and security. i have complete trust within the confines of their agency walls. if you look at all of the botched terrorist plots that have been occurring since 9/11, it is absolutely amazing what our agencies are doing to keep us safe. who i do not trust is the white house suits who apparently put a spin on the nsa's official briefs and input on worldwide events. i believe the white house puts a political spin on everything that comes to the president, to the secretary of state. then to the american people. it was 9/11 when we had benghazi going down. that is a data i think the president would rather have nothing going down. apparently there was something going down. with petraeus, is it not ironic that he is now being the scrutinized over these extramarital affairs when he is about to testify in regards to what happened in benghazi. >>let's get a couple more comments on facebook and twitter. thank you for all of your calls. coming up next, congressman r

from california mr. waxman is recognized for five minutes. >> thank you mr. chairman. i find this hearing amazing because what we need to do is to work together to solve a problem and make sure it will never happen again. instead what i hear from my republican colleagues is they want to prosecute the director of the food and drug administration. did she know this? what actions did she take? it sounds like massachusetts has a lot to be apologetic about. isn't that a fair statement dr. smith? >> yes, you are right. >> the question is did fda failed to do things they should have done? well, it sounds like you could have done more. the fda as an institution could do more in the first time they wrote the letter was 2006 saying that this company seemed to be out of control. and then they didn't do anything after that. i have a feeling dock or sublike you are being picked on because you are part of the obama administration and republicans have been picking on obama for four years. usually their mantra goes, jobs -- job pastoring regulation. lead industry police itself and we don't w
